IRC logs of #boinc for Wednesday, 2008-11-05

00:00 <MTughan> Not including customs, which is already in the price.

00:00 <jackygrahamez_> Is Canada the happiest country in the World?

00:01 <jackygrahamez_> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:World_happiness.png

00:01 <Romulus> <http://tinyurl.com/227tfz> (at en.wikipedia.org)

00:01 <MTughan> I could believe that.

00:02 <jackygrahamez_> MTughan, you got a sister? :-)

00:02 <efc> 'course, the smart people have things structures as capital gain, gets you down to 10%

00:02 <MTughan> jackygrahamez_: Why?

00:02 <jackygrahamez_> just looking for a route to citizenship

00:02 <jackygrahamez_> joking

00:02 <MTughan> Yes. And she's two years younger than me.

00:03 <MTughan> You can always try PovAddict's sis. xD

00:03 <efc> I'm looking for a route to marriage, does she ship UPS or Fedex?

00:03 <Soul_keeper> "are you sleeping with my daughter?"    "....no!"     "why are you gay?!"

00:03 <Soul_keeper> well it's clear now that hollywood runs america

00:04 <MTughan> &cad CAD's up.

00:04 <Romulus> http://www.ctrlaltdel-online.com/comic.php

00:04 <MTughan> XKCD not yet, I'll keep an eye on it.

00:04 <efc> At one point in the past btw, the highest individual income tax in the US was 92%

00:05 <efc> WW2 I think

00:05 <MTughan> Dems have just about tipped the House.

00:06 <MTughan> That'd be a full Democratic sweep I think.

00:06 <MTughan> House tipped.

00:07 <efc> Shields up

00:08 <MTughan> US has now voted a total Democratic majority.

00:09 <Soul_keeper> i'm scared

00:09 <Tank_Master> MTughan - you cant crunch with ATI

00:09 <MTughan> AI will be releasing an app for ATI soon.

00:10 <Soul_keeper> ron paul was saying yesterday on cnn that we need no majority so that way they can bicker and grind to a halt and stop passing all these junk bills/policies

00:10 <RocketJumper21> absolutely

00:10 <MTughan> Tank_Master: http://www.intelligencerealm.com/aisystem/forum_thread.php?id=255

00:10 <Romulus> <http://tinyurl.com/5dth9q> (at www.intelligencerealm.com)

00:11 <MTughan> Soul_keeper: What do you think happens up here? We're WAY ahead of you.

00:11 <MTughan> We have 4 major political parties, and another one making its way up the ranks.

00:12 <Soul_keeper> good

00:12 <RocketJumper21> i'm a fan of Ron Paul / Chuck Baldwin

00:12 <RocketJumper21> the Constitution Party :))

00:13 <Soul_keeper> libertarian/constitutionalist

00:13 <Tank_Master> huh

00:13 <Tank_Master> so far only nvidia GPUs have been used

00:13 <MTughan> We have a Marijuana party... o_O

00:13 <jackygrahamez_> Now that we have a black president, do we have to worry about a deep impact scenario?

00:13 <Tank_Master> efc - I use fotit to for pdf

00:14 <Tank_Master> and I like that IR7pro blocks flash till I click on it

00:14 <Soul_keeper> they had a black president in that  "24" show too ...

00:14 <Tank_Master> IE7pro*

00:15 <jackygrahamez_> Oh I should go to be

00:15 <jackygrahamez_> d

00:15 *** jackygrahamez_ has left #boinc

00:16 <Tank_Master> c-ya?

00:17 <RocketJumper21> musta seen his wife naked or something

00:18 <Tank_Master> lol

00:18 <Tank_Master> MTughan - do you know if BOINC 6.3 will detect ATI as a coprocessor like it does the geforce?

00:19 <MTughan> Dunno how they'll implement it.

00:19 <MTughan> At this point though, Nvidia and ATI cards require different programming.

00:20 <Tank_Master> yeah

00:20 <MTughan> However, my main motivator is that two HD4850's perform better than one GTX 280, and cost less.

00:20 <Tank_Master> ok

00:20 <Tank_Master> heh

00:20 <Tank_Master> LO

00:20 <Tank_Master> :P

00:20 <MTughan> AI may just build conditional ATI checking into their app and use it if available.

00:21 <MTughan> So it'll run on the CPU, but if it detects a compatible ATI GPU, can run on the GPU and CPU.

00:27 <MTughan> &xkcd XKCD is up.

00:27 <Romulus> http://www.xkcd.com/

00:27 <MTughan> Oh, and has relevance to the election!

00:28 <Tank_Master> heh

00:28 <Tank_Master> figures

00:28 <Tank_Master> :P

00:28 <MTughan> "<name> the <occupation>" xD

00:32 <MTughan> Oh, and Tank_Master: Forgot to directly address your question above, about whether BOINC 6.3 will detect an ATI card as a coprocessor.

00:32 <MTughan> At this point, no. Just Nvidia cards.

00:32 <Tank_Master> ok

00:32 <Tank_Master> thx

00:32 <Tank_Master> though they probably will at some point, right?

00:33 <MTughan> But my purchase is still far off. I can still change to a Nvidia.

00:33 <MTughan> More than likely. I can't see how they can afford not to.

00:33 <Tank_Master> or they can ad ATI

00:33 <Tank_Master> yeah, I dont see why they wouldnt

00:34 <MTughan> (from above) Even if I get a 9800GTX(+), I can add another one later. Two of those perform better than the two HD4850's, and the GTX is still plenty powerful.

00:34 <MTughan> Plus BOINC coprocessing.

00:35 <MTughan> Hey look, my email address has won the UK lottery... >_>

00:35 <granpa_paul> ATI has released they latest version of Cuda-like developer package

00:35 <Tank_Master> but they arent compatible, right, granpa_paul?

00:35 <MTughan> One second... Let me see if I can find that again.

00:36 <granpa_paul> oh no

00:36 <MTughan> Here it is. Ignore the fact that it's Apple for the moment and look at the very bottom thing: http://www.apple.com/macosx/snowleopard/

00:36 <Romulus> Title: Apple - Mac OS X Leopard - Snow Leopard (at www.apple.com)

00:36 <MTughan> The OpenCL.

00:37 <Tank_Master> sounds like a cuda wrapper

00:37 <granpa_paul> they'll have to modify quite a few things, but porting shouldn't be neaarly as hard as the cuba based projects

00:37 <Tank_Master> but that is nice to see added to the OS

00:38 <MTughan> "AMD has decided to back OpenCL (and DirectX 11) instead of its now deprecated Close to Metal framework."

00:38 <MTughan> Nice...

00:38 <MTughan> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/OpenCL

00:38 <Tank_Master> :)

00:38 <Romulus> Title: OpenCL - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (at en.wikipedia.org)

00:38 <MTughan> I don't see any mention of Nvidia.

00:38 <Tank_Master> DX11 - that win7, right?

00:38 <MTughan> Maybe. Like DX10 was Vista.

00:38 <Tank_Master> ya

00:39 <Tank_Master> I think so

00:39 <MTughan> That's actually the first time I've heard of DX11.

00:39 <MTughan> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DirectX#Direct3D_11

00:39 <Romulus> <http://tinyurl.com/3txov> (at en.wikipedia.org)

00:39 <Tank_Master> with the major scheduled features including GPGPU

00:40 <MTughan> Doesn't it already? :P

00:40 <Tank_Master> Direct3D 11 will run on Windows Vista and its successor Windows 7

00:41 <RocketJumper21> TM u installed win7 already... does it say it has DX11 or is it still DX10?

00:41 <Tank_Master> 10

00:42 <RocketJumper21> guess they're still working on 11

00:42 <Tank_Master> this is only m3, 11 might be in the B1 or RC1 builds later on

00:42 <Tank_Master> yeah

00:42 <MTughan> Are you a registered dev, rip off M3, or is it available for public d/l?

00:43 <Tank_Master> torrent M3

00:43 <Tank_Master> :P

00:43 <MTughan> Fair enough.

00:43 <RocketJumper21> it's on my ftp site too.....

00:43 <Tank_Master> yeah

00:43 <RocketJumper21> shhh, hehe

00:43 <Tank_Master> :P

00:43 <MTughan> I have Vista Beta 2 and RC1 DVDs at home. xD

00:44 <Tank_Master> lol

00:44 <Tank_Master> I tossed mine a month ago

00:44 <MTughan> I haven't really been home since beginning of September. Although I don't really need them anymore.

00:45 <RocketJumper21> yea i still have my RC1 Vista DVDs of x86 and x64 but then when Vista came out i ran out and bought it... all 400 bucks for the ultimate edition...

00:45 <MTughan> Hmm... Do you think it's worth recycling the P4 I have now, getting a cheap case and PSU, and creating another cruncher?

00:45 <Tank_Master> yeah

00:45 <Tank_Master> would use less power

00:45 <MTughan> Believe it or not, I have a Vista Ultimate license too...

00:46 <Tank_Master> nice

00:46 <Tank_Master> believe it or not, I dont

00:46 <Tank_Master> ;)

00:46 <MTughan> Tank_Master: No, I'm replacing the P4 with the case I have now. Should I keep it and stick in in a cheap case and PSU?

00:46 <RocketJumper21> and u call yourself an it admin? hehe

00:47 <Tank_Master> yeah, I do, thats why I know were to get the stuff free and not bother with keys

00:47 <Tank_Master> ;)

00:47 <MTughan> My main OSes now are both Unix based.

00:47 <RocketJumper21> hehe, yep.... good call :))

00:47 <MTughan> I like the Linux solutions better. Free, powerful, and LEGAL.

00:48 <MTughan> What the... Why do I have two Trashes on my desktop?

00:48 <RocketJumper21> yea.... and ubuntu comes with some nice screensavers hehe

00:48 <MTughan> rofl... I have Trash in the Trash.

00:48 <Tank_Master> thats cus your linux is twice the trash it once was

00:49 <Tank_Master> :D

00:49 <MTughan> Tank_Master: Trash before = 0. 2* Trash before = 0

00:49 <MTughan> Easy enough math. :D

00:49 <MTughan> Or maybe I have negative trash... >:D

00:50 <RocketJumper21> what's the opposite of trash? Assets?

00:50 <RocketJumper21> Linux?

00:50 <Romulus> It has been said that Linux is case sensitve, Kathryn and kathryn are as different as bob and kathRyn, RocketJumper21

00:50 <RocketJumper21> hehe

00:50 <MTughan> Hehe... I can trash the trash in the Trash in the Trash. Wow, that makes my head spin...

00:51 <MTughan> Think I can trash Obama?

00:51 <Tank_Master> lol

00:51 <Tank_Master> sounds like a logic loop that some poor linux developer over looked

00:51 <RocketJumper21> Romulus: do you realize i already know that?

00:51 <Romulus> RocketJumper21: Error: You must be registered to use this command. If you are already registered, you must either identify (using the identify command) or add a hostmask matching your current hostmask (using the "hostmask add" command).

00:51 * Tank_Master pushes Romulus into a crevasse

00:52 <MTughan> &do

00:52 <Romulus> MTughan: (do <channel> <action>) -- Performs <action> in <channel>.

00:52 <MTughan> &do #boinc kills himself

00:52 <Romulus> MTughan: Error: You must be registered to use this command. If you are already registered, you must either identify (using the identify command) or add a hostmask matching your current hostmask (using the "hostmask add" command).

00:52 <MTughan> Dammit...

00:52 <Tank_Master> lol

00:52 <RocketJumper21> sounds like a broken record.... :)

00:53 <MTughan> &do #boinc kills himself

00:53 * Romulus kills himself

00:53 <MTughan> xD

00:54 <Tank_Master> :P

00:55 <MTughan> Oh yeah... Tank_Master: Will be a new player to the market in a year or so: Larrabee.

00:55 <Tank_Master> ?

00:56 <Tank_Master> oohhh

00:56 <Tank_Master> more than a year

00:56 <MTughan> Intel's GPU.

00:56 <RocketJumper21> Romulus: are you from the Romulan-Klingon Alliance in Star Trek?

00:56 <Romulus> RocketJumper21: Are you daft?

00:56 <Tank_Master> in a yea is the die shrink

00:56 <MTughan> "Intel plans to have engineering samples of Larrabee ready by the end of 2008, with a video card hitting shelves in late 2009 or 2010"

00:56 <Tank_Master> huh

00:56 <MTughan> RocketJumper21: Use &8ball.

00:56 <MTughan> &8ball are you from the Romulan-Klingon Alliance in Star Trek?

00:56 <Romulus> MTughan: The answer is a resounding no.

00:57 <Tank_Master> sounds like a precoursor to the CPU/GPU hybread

00:57 <Tank_Master> comming out after the 32mn dieshrink

00:57 <MTughan> Larrabee is a CPU/GPU hybrid.

00:57 <Tank_Master> but...

00:57 <Tank_Master> I didnt think that was comming out till 10/11

00:57 <Tank_Master> strange

00:57 <MTughan> Guess they've been moved up.

00:58 <Tank_Master> they must be coming along faster than planed origonally

00:58 <Tank_Master> I aint complaining

00:58 <Tank_Master> :D

00:58 <MTughan> lol

00:58 <Tank_Master> 2TFlOPs on one chip....

00:58 <Tank_Master> get a handfull of them...

00:59 <RocketJumper21> that's insane

01:00 <MTughan> Looks like Larrabee will first be on a 45nm process, with 32 cores. Defectives will be sold as 24-core. In 2010, Larrabee will move to 32nm, and 48 cores.

01:00 <Tank_Master> delaying the 32mn shrink?

01:00 <Tank_Master> wow

01:00 <MTughan> And may have a TDP of 300W... O_O

01:00 <Tank_Master> they must really be ahead of schedual

01:00 <Tank_Master> lol

01:00 <Tank_Master> sounds like most GPUs today

01:00 <MTughan> That's higher than anything today.

01:01 <Tank_Master> cpu wise anyway

01:02 <MTughan> I'm trying to look up specs. I think the GTX 280 is around 250W.

01:02 <MTughan> 236W.

01:03 <Tank_Master> hot stuff

01:03 <MTughan> Hopefully Larrabee will be more efficient.

01:05 <Tank_Master> yeah

01:05 <MTughan> BTW: Comparison of Crossfire vs. single cards. http://images.hardwarecanucks.com/image/skymtl/GPU/CROSSFIRE/CROSSFIRE-64.JPG

01:05 <Romulus> <http://tinyurl.com/5pv93q> (at images.hardwarecanucks.com)

01:05 <Tank_Master> cant wait to BOINC it

01:06 <Tank_Master> I cant wait for the 380 to come out (if the spects I saw were true)

01:07 <Tank_Master> 256 shaders, 2GB ram...

01:07 <Tank_Master> higher clocks

01:07 <MTughan> Now, the power usage is also higher. The whole system they were testing drew 376W under full load. Although the GTX 280 drew 361W, so that's not too bad.

01:09 <Tank_Master> still not to bad

01:09 <Tank_Master> could be much higher

01:09 <MTughan> Yeah. Considering the ATI cards averaged 25 fps higher than the 280 at 2560x1600. That's just massive.

01:10 <RocketJumper21> u mean 40 fps higher?

01:10 <MTughan> I'm looking at the 4850's, not the 4870's.

01:11 <MTughan> Two 4850's are less than a GTX280.

01:11 <RocketJumper21> i didn't realize the ATI's were doing so well nowadays

01:11 <Tank_Master> they werent

01:11 <MTughan> The 4800 series basically blew everyone out of the water in terms of performance and value.

01:11 <Tank_Master> till the 4850 and 4870 came out

01:12 <MTughan> Nvidia had to immediately drop the prices on the GTX series. I think the 260 dropped at least $100 and the 280 ~$150. Just to compete.

01:13 <Tank_Master> ... oh man ...

01:13 <Tank_Master> &cad

01:13 <Romulus> http://www.ctrlaltdel-online.com/comic.php

01:13 <MTughan> Man, AMD should just get out the CPU business and go into GPUs. :P

01:13 <Tank_Master> GPUs are going to be gone in a few years

01:13 <MTughan> Saw it already. I'm scared to know what Ethan's going to do...

01:13 <Tank_Master> both AMD and intel are woking on CPU/GPU hybrids

01:14 <MTughan> I'm pretty sure discrete cards will never go away. Nvidia won't let them.

01:14 <Tank_Master> intel has sated that things like DirectX and OGL will be obsolete in 5 years or so

01:14 <Tank_Master> nvidia will become a processor on a board

01:15 <Tank_Master> adding to the computational power of the comp

01:15 <MTughan> Like the 9400M?

01:15 <efc> Back to the passive backplane, batman

01:15 <Tank_Master> efc!

01:15 <Tank_Master> wb

01:15 <Tank_Master> 9400M?

01:15 <Tank_Master> not fimillar with that

01:16 <MTughan> New Macbooks. It's a northbridge, southbridge, and GPU in one.

01:16 <Tank_Master> ahh

01:16 <MTughan> Not unlike their nForce series, I guess.

01:16 <Tank_Master> sounds like what intel will have out in a year of so

01:16 <Tank_Master> but no

01:16 <Tank_Master> for the GPU in that instance is still a GPU

01:17 <Tank_Master> but capibil of any general processing

01:17 <MTughan> Hehe... Larrabee is being designed by a team whose last project was the P4.

01:17 <Tank_Master> :P

01:17 <efc> It runs on crude oil

01:17 <MTughan> From Saudi Arabia? :P

01:18 <efc> Maybe this new cpu will knock down the core2 prices a bit.. without really leaving them behind in speed for a while

01:18 <MTughan> You mean Nehalem?

01:18 <efc> Yeah

01:18 <RocketJumper21> i7 :)

01:19 <MTughan> RocketJumper21: You probably know this, but Core i7 is using a Nehalem based core. So for now, they're one and the same.

01:19 <Tank_Master> nehalem is the codename for the architecture

01:19 <RocketJumper21> thus... i7

01:19 <efc> I do like the idea of cheap dual socket MBs coming back, but there's little mention of that yet

01:19 <Tank_Master> i7 is the name fo rhte desktop varent

01:20 <efc> "cheap" in relative terms, I mea

01:20 <Tank_Master> yeah, that would be nice, efc

01:20 <MTughan> efc: The Gainestown probably won't be out until Q1 2009 or later.

01:20 <Tank_Master> cheep, like the dual P3 I had

01:21 <MTughan> Just the Bloomfield cores being released now.

01:21 <efc> somewhere i read that the inter processor interface was much simpler. but i guess the CPUs themselves have to support it?

01:21 <MTughan> You mean QPI?

01:22 <RocketJumper21> yea kinda like AMD's Direct Connect architecture

01:22 <efc> I guess so, looking

01:23 <MTughan> Direct Connect? You mean Hyper Transport?

01:23 <Tank_Master> which intel calls quickpath?

01:23 <RocketJumper21> i suppose

01:23 <Tank_Master> or soemthing like that

01:23 <MTughan> That's the view I got.

01:24 <RocketJumper21> yea i really was hoping that their DSDC Quad Phenom's were going to be revolutionary... but too bad so sad.... but now there's the i7 :))

01:25 <MTughan> Yeah, I think Phenom's going to get a push to 45nm soon, but it may be too little too alte.

01:25 <MTughan> late*

01:26 <efc> I think I posted a link earlier.. you can get a quad socket Phenom board, with a quad socket daughterboard

01:26 <MTughan> The Tyan one?

01:26 <efc> or is that intel, i can't keep em straight

01:26 <efc> Yeah that one

01:26 <RocketJumper21> that would be sick

01:26 <MTughan> Board: http://www.tyan.com.tw/product_board_detail.aspx?pid=271

01:26 <Romulus> <http://tinyurl.com/6n7j5y> (at www.tyan.com.tw)

01:26 <MTughan> Daughter: http://www.tyan.com.tw/product_accessories_spec.aspx?pid=49

01:26 <Romulus> <http://tinyurl.com/5uzplw> (at www.tyan.com.tw)

01:28 <efc> I'd have to hack 2k all the way up to the datacenter edition to run one of those :)

01:28 <MTughan> lol

01:28 <MTughan> 32 cores in all with 8 quad-cores.

01:28 <RocketJumper21> that would be 32 Cores

01:29 <efc> win2k datacenter edition did up to 64 cores.. maybe only on special hardware though

01:29 <RocketJumper21> i would pee my pants, lol

01:29 <Tank_Master> efc - why not use server 2003?

01:29 <efc> in your hot, hot pants

01:29 <efc> 2k was my jumping off point, don't like the newer versions

01:29 <MTughan> "These processors are expected to be available in late 2008 to early 2009..." About new Phenoms. Does that range sound familiar?

01:30 <Tank_Master> lol

01:30 <Tank_Master> yeah

01:30 <Tank_Master> but where are they?

01:30 <MTughan> Good question. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AMD_Phenom#Future_models

01:30 <Romulus> <http://tinyurl.com/35b23q> (at en.wikipedia.org)

01:30 <MTughan> I'm giving Rommie a workout tonight...

01:31 <efc> I guess you can buy umpteen core systems from OEMs but still its nice to see boards like that

01:31 <efc> If you have a blade system, I assume the blades are completely separate process-wise? ie 20 blades != 20 cpu system

01:32 <MTughan> As I know... Never looked it up though.

01:32 <efc> Those things are really expensive..

01:32 <Tank_Master> a balde is a computer

01:32 <efc> The kind of money saving math only a business major can understand

01:33 <Tank_Master> each with its one independent hardware

01:33 <MTughan> It's compact.

01:33 <Tank_Master> vary compact

01:33 <Tank_Master> and usually noisy

01:34 <MTughan> Doesn't really matter in a server room.

01:34 <Tank_Master> true

01:34 <Tank_Master> which is why there is usually little effert put into quieting them

01:34 <efc> don't think even my giant Inwin case could hold that Tyan.. much less the daughterboard

01:35 <MTughan> Anyway... I don't have early class tomorrow, but staying up to 3+ AM every day is taking its toll. I'm off to bed while it's still 1:30AM.

01:35 <Tank_Master> gn MTughan

01:35 <Tank_Master> nice chattin

01:36 <RocketJumper21> where would you put the daughter board?

01:36 <Tank_Master> in bed with the fauther board

01:36 <RocketJumper21> yuck

01:36 <RocketJumper21> hehe

01:36 <efc> usually they are custom cases

01:36 <efc> weird stuff that turns up in 5 years on ebay for $5

01:37 <efc> cuz it doesn't fit anything else

01:37 <MTughan> Gah... F*** you CPU scaling. First my computer is sitting idle for two hours, then it sits crunching at a third of its capacity for another 2 hours...

01:37 <efc> in-win could do a 15x13", maybe

01:37 <RocketJumper21> lol

01:38 <RocketJumper21> turn off scaling then

01:38 <MTughan> Wish I knew.

01:38 <RocketJumper21> bios

01:38 <efc> CPU exfoliation, remove scales

01:38 <MTughan> And it's not totally useless. I still use this laptop on wireless for long periods of time.

01:38 <MTughan> Scaling the proc down from 2.53GHz to 800MHz is useful for extending batt life.

01:39 <RocketJumper21> well if you plan on crunching for a few days, turn it off, and when you wanna go mobile, turn it back on

01:40 <MTughan> I can actually set the speed manually, it's just I forgot to do it.

01:40 <RocketJumper21> in windows?

01:40 <MTughan> Linux.

01:40 <RocketJumper21> nice

01:40 <RocketJumper21> what distro?

01:40 <Romulus> Rumor has it what distro is this, RocketJumper21

01:40 <MTughan> Fedora 8.

01:41 <RocketJumper21> i love fedora

01:41 <MTughan> Customized Compiz and upgraded kernel.

01:41 <RocketJumper21> did you compile the kernel yourself?

01:42 <MTughan> Unfortunately, support for wireless is in the next kernel revision...

01:42 <MTughan> No, downloaded a testing kernel package and installed that.

01:42 <RocketJumper21> a dell laptop?

01:42 <MTughan> Lenovo T400.

01:43 <RocketJumper21> nice choice, hehe

01:43 <MTughan> It's a nice machine. My first 64-bit processor too.

01:44 <RocketJumper21> what cpu?

01:44 <efc> oh yeah, that tyan set would max out at 128 gig

01:44 <RocketJumper21> C2D?

01:44 <MTughan> Core 2 Duo T9400. 1066MHz FSB, 2.53GHz core.

01:45 <MTughan> DDR3-1066 RAM, 2GB.

01:45 <RocketJumper21> 128 GB of RAM is almost enough to hold all my dreams at night, lol

01:45 <MTughan> lol

01:45 <MTughan> You mean a SSD?

01:46 <RocketJumper21> man i wish i had a couple SSD's, yea... i wanna wait until they get 1TB SSD's though

01:47 <MTughan> You'll be waiting a while.

01:47 <RocketJumper21> i hope not too long

01:47 <Tank_Master> lol

01:47 <Tank_Master> itll be a few years probably

01:47 <RocketJumper21> yikes

01:47 <Tank_Master> though going to 3.5" will help

01:48 <MTughan> Anyways, I do need to get off...

01:48 <Tank_Master> tc

01:48 <RocketJumper21> gn

01:49 <RocketJumper21> wow that T400 is cheap!!!!!!

01:55 <RocketJumper21> until you start adding upgrades, lol

01:57 <Tank_Master> :)

17:07 <CoderForLife> I have an on-topic question.  I upgraded boincmgr in 'doze, and pre-filled-in passwords are appearing in the Select Computer dialog where I had none before.  Where are those config'd?  Did the upgrade add them?

17:07 <MTughan> I was trying to copy the PDF link there to read the announcement.

17:08 <CoderForLife> Ooo - I completed an LHC WU =)

17:08 <PovAddict> CoderForLife: when you type 'localhost', it fills in the password from gui_rpc_auth.cfg (same file the client uses to know what password to accept), since the manager has access to it

17:08 <CoderForLife> it's when I'm accessing another machine

17:09 <PovAddict> might be a new feature...

17:09 <CoderForLife> pain is more like it

17:09 <PovAddict> anyway, the manager uses "~/.BOINC Manager" on Linux, and the registry on Windows (don't remember key name)

17:10 <CoderForLife> so I got to serach the registry??

17:10 <xcamel> pov - was the 'fixed' build ever posted...??

19:58 <zombie67> we probably have two levels:  registered/logged in vs. known members

19:58 <MTughan> Dunno. Anyway, I can understand him wanting to do the same to Ramsey, but Pov and I analyzed the code and figured out we'd maybe get about 100 different results max because of the RNG.

20:01 <Tank_Master> I liked ramsey

20:01 <Tank_Master> the 15k RAC was nice

20:01 <MTughan> Because of the credits?

20:01 * Tank_Master could give a rats @$$ about hte science

20:01 <MTughan> Yeah, but he figured he could use a better algorithm than bruteforce. It could've been a quick fix for the RNG, but a different algorithm is harder.

20:02 <Tank_Master> true

20:02 <zombie67> Ramsey aside, I don't think the freehal folks are intentionally inflating creditsw

20:03 <zombie67> probably just don't really understand how to use BOINC

20:03 <MTughan> Maybe.

20:04 <zombie67> other wise, why award half the tasks with less than 1 credit?

20:04 <zombie67> and award the other half with 100

20:04 <zombie67> ?

20:04 <MTughan> Average out?

20:05 <zombie67> why go to all that trouble, instead of just awarding 50 per?

20:05 <MTughan> I have no idea. I haven't seen FreeHALs results.

20:05 <zombie67> something is clearly messed up...not intentionally

20:05 <zombie67> The link was in the email

20:05 <MTughan> "http://boinc.freehal.org/projects/freeh ... ?hostid=73"

20:06 <zombie67> oh

20:06 <zombie67> just a sec

20:06 <zombie67> http://boinc.freehal.org/projects/freehal_at_home/results.php?hostid=73

20:06 <Romulus> <http://tinyurl.com/67h5lb> (at boinc.freehal.org)

20:06 <MTughan> Thanks,.

20:07 <MTughan> That is odd.

20:07 <zombie67> see how I came to the conclusion?

20:07 <MTughan> They're running Perl...

20:08 <zombie67> and they have a LOT of other problems with the wrapper

20:08 <MTughan> I've never heard of Perl for a client application, so that could have something to do with it.

20:09 <zombie67> 1)  upon *starting*, it immediately shows 35:45:04 of elapsed time

20:09 <zombie67> 2) the clock does not continue to climb

20:09 <zombie67> 3) % complete is 100%.

20:10 <zombie67> and it also sometimes run as if it is a non-CPU task

20:14 <zombie67> so instead of fixing it, Willy's response is to just remove it

20:14 <zombie67> Funny how he doesn't remove projects that significantly under-award

20:16 <MTughan> Because those don't allow people to move ahead unfairly.

20:16 <zombie67> not the point

20:17 <zombie67> the argument is:  project need to award the same to make cross-project stats meaningful, and so that one project does not pull from another.

20:17 <zombie67> those arguments apply equally to bothe over and under awarding projects

20:17 <zombie67> yet no one ever says boo about the latter

20:18 <MTughan> Under awarding projects might also be those that are testing and not ready for primetime.

20:18 <MTughan> And people don't complain until they feel someone is cheating. Over awarding projects are those, under awarding are just dragging people back.

20:18 <MTughan> Agreed, it may not be fair. But it's capitalist.

20:19 <zombie67> those points address neither of the argument points

20:20 <xcamel> hey kids... if life were fair on this planet, we would be snack food for intelligent reptiles.

20:20 <zombie67> For DA or Willy to single out one side, just proves that they aren't being honest about WHY they are doing it.

20:20 <xcamel> exactly - never have been, never will be

20:22 <zombie67> my point:  quit with the BS "justification".  Be honest with us and yourself.

20:23 <zombie67> my personal opinion:  Can't ever get to cross-project parity.  So stop trying.

20:23 <zombie67> Use the Formula BOINC methodology, comparing ranks

20:23 <xcamel> DA designed it all to be very socialist, almost to the point of taking away points from strong performers and giving it to the schlubs..

20:31 <efc> Spread the credits, man

20:31 <wdsmia> Remember when DA stated (in the early days) people will just crunch a generic client  they wont care about credit or having preferences to control there machines

20:32 <xcamel> very well...

20:33 <xcamel> polyanna processing

20:33 <wdsmia> yep

20:33 <xcamel> until some of us really kicked ass on astropulse

20:36 *** PovAddict has joined #boinc

20:41 *** freakazoid0223 has quit IRC

20:46 <wdsmia> Then came the long/short term debit debacle imho that was where boinc dev turned into blot ware

20:46 <zombie67> MT?

20:46 <Romulus> I guess MT is right, zombie67

20:46 <MTughan> Yep.

20:46 <MTughan> And STFU Rommit.

20:46 <MTughan> Rommie*

20:46 <PovAddict> grommit?

20:47 <zombie67> I want to ask ABC to provide a 64 bit app for OSX

20:47 <zombie67> which version of BOINC client started support for 64 bit osx?

20:47 <MTughan> Well, just crashed an Apple app...

20:47 <xcamel> no idea..

20:48 <MTughan> Uh, I'm not sure.

20:48 <zombie67> POV?

20:48 <Romulus> Rumor has it POV is usually not got for very long, zombie67

20:48 <PovAddict> meh

20:48 <zombie67> come on!  someone her should know

20:48 <zombie67> ;)

20:48 <PovAddict> I own no mac

20:48 <zombie67> but you know the changes!

20:48 <zombie67> to BOINC that is

20:49 <PovAddict> my brain is currently running throttled

20:49 <zombie67> heh

20:49 <PovAddict> to conserve the low battery power my body has left, and to avoid overheating (we reached 38°C this afternoon)

20:49 <zombie67> is that something that trac would know?

20:50 <PovAddict> coulda shoulda woulda

20:50 <PovAddict> maybe

20:51 <PovAddict> CPCP = Cross-Project Credit Parity

20:51 <PovAddict> Acronym Pulled Out Of My [____]

20:52 <PovAddict> bah

20:52 <zombie67> POV, CPCP makes me thing of the USSR

20:52 <PovAddict> I have a setiusa forum account but I don't remember even username

20:52 <PovAddict> zombie67: until it gets officially "removed", we have to live with it - and follow it

20:53 <PovAddict> basically as long as stats sites add up credits from different projects as if they had the same "exchange rate", projects have to try to keep them with the same exchange rate...

20:53 <zombie67> until what gets removed?

20:54 <zombie67> POV, fair enough, but that applies to the UNDER-awarding projects too

20:54 <zombie67> yet....silence

20:54 <PovAddict> definitely!

20:54 <PovAddict> but then... under- or over-awarding compared to what?

20:54 <zombie67> according to DA, SETI

20:55 <PovAddict> Eric Korpela is making SETI drift with his new credit adjustment features...

20:55 <zombie67> When I said reminds me of USSR, I was talking about the acronym ....CCCP

20:55 <zombie67> POV:  exactly!  SETI is not a fixed benchmark!

20:55 <zombie67> So how can it possibly be for any other project to use?

20:55 <PovAddict> Crappy Computation Credit Parity?

20:56 <zombie67> especially since they added AP, which does not have an optimized app

20:56 <zombie67> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cccp

20:56 <Romulus> Title: Soviet Union - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (at en.wikipedia.org)

21:02 <xcamel> If someone made a boinc client that was open source, did good science, and was purely capitalistic, in a short time no one would remember DA or EK' names...

21:03 <PovAddict> an initial idea for "credits done our way" is simple...

21:03 <xcamel> no tinkering, no smoothing, no adjusting. raw credit for raw work.

21:04 <xcamel> clean out all the shit code and go for pure speed

21:04 <wdsmia> asks xcamel to please watch his or her language Thanks, your friendly channel op.

21:04 <PovAddict> a project wanting to "participate" in... well, having less problems :P would just have to grant credits any way it wants, and either not export XMLs or export in a different format...

21:04 <zombie67> Formula BOINC!

21:04 <xcamel> bingo

21:05 <PovAddict> stats sites, you want the data? don't add it with credits from other projects

21:06 <xcamel> It's only taken 4 years for people to start agreeing with me, and see that boinc is going exactly the route I said it would..

21:07 <PovAddict> o well I'll have to go

21:08 <xcamel> that is to a point of credit abstraction that nobody can stomach

21:13 *** PovAddict has quit IRC

21:13 * efc lost track of what the Right Thing To Do was

21:17 <xcamel> yeah, that too..

21:19 *** PovAddict has joined #boinc

21:21 <xcamel> that was fast..

21:21 <PovAddict> I had to do a clean reboot for once, to fix my hardware clock

21:22 <xcamel> time change?

21:22 <PovAddict> I hadn't done a clean reboot since DST started

21:22 <PovAddict> and Linux only saves system clock to hardware clock on shutdown

21:23 <PovAddict> every time I had a "non-clean" shutdown (like I had an hour ago, power glitch), my system clock got loaded from the off-by-an-hour hardware clock...

21:23 <PovAddict> heh from boincstats shoutbox:

21:23 <PovAddict> "SETI has server "issues" (nothing new there) and no estimate given when they will be back on line."

21:24 <efc> How is S@H doing money wise? Keeping the lights on?

21:26 <PovAddict> as always, asking for donations :P

21:27 <efc> Yeah, but they aren't meeting their goals, so I assume something has to give

21:27 <MTughan> They want to set up a non-profit organization for donations.

21:28 <Romulus> <http://tinyurl.com/5o3w9q> (at setiathome.berkeley.edu)

21:33 <efc> I think they got the non-profit part down pretty well

21:34 <xcamel> "giant sucking sound" comes to mind...

21:35 *** desti has quit IRC

21:36 <zombie67> sounds like a pretty good reason to keep interest high for seti crunchers....don't look at that attractive project over there!

21:38 <xcamel> a mass defection might make a point...

21:38 <MTughan> lol

21:40 <zombie67> I'm just saying that DA has a conflict of interest when it comes to credits, and what standard to use

21:41 <MTughan> brb, restarting Colloquy...

21:41 *** MTughan has quit IRC

21:42 *** MTughan has joined #boinc

21:43 <MTughan> There, that should help.

21:45 <MTughan> Hmm... Think 31 tabs open in FF might be contributing to high RAM usage? :P

21:46 <MTughan> Just like that, I'm down to 21... Man, I had some old tabs open.

21:52 <xcamel> could be trouble...

21:53 <xcamel> just 2 more days..

21:54 <MTughan> To what?

21:54 <xcamel> mexico

21:55 <MTughan> Mexico? A country has a day?

21:55 <xcamel> 2 week vacation...

21:55 <MTughan> Ah. Sounds nice.

21:55 * xcamel seriously needs it...

21:56 <MTughan> lol

21:56 <xcamel> more than seriously

21:56 * MTughan hasn't seen so few tabs in FF for a couple weeks...

21:56 <xcamel> laterz...

21:56 <MTughan> Bye.

23:33 <zombie67> yeah, but not much

23:33 <zombie67> I think

23:33 <zombie67> for example, I have two VP tasks running, and they take 49 and 50%

23:34 <zombie67> so FH is taking only1%
